Evidence of the proliferation of the Internet of Things (IoT) in business, industry and governance is clear from the growing number of international conferences aimed at showcasing the potential benefits of a connected world. Over the first four days of November eight such international events are being held mainly in the USA but also in London.

Four events are taking place on 1-2 November. The Internet of Manufacturing Chicago is a unique opportunity to examine the IoT business case for manufacturing and learn through real-world scenarios how to go about IoT development. This is a great event for IT consultants and developers, specialist in IT, security, infrastructure, services, systems, system administrators, system integrators, architects, consultants and IT management who are responsible for implementing IoT. LPWAN World Forum 2016 in London is a 2-day conference and exhibition focused on Low Power Wide Area Networks and its impact on IoT technology. More than 40 visionary speakers will be in attendance to illustrate how LPWANs are enabling a wide range of M2M and IoT applications. Smart Home Summit in Palo Alto, California is where leading decision makers will explore how to turn the smart home into a reality for the mass market.

The Internet of Things Expo in Santa Clara on 1-3 November will feature the relevance of IoT from an economic, business and technology standpoint, covering common issues and requirements for creating a platform for the IoT, the value of the vast volumes of new data produced by the IoT and much more.

The 13th International Conference & Expo on Emerging Technologies for a Smarter World taking place in New York on 2nd November is a major tech event on emerging technologies where the Internet of Things will also be a big part of the agenda alongside Cloud Computing, Networks; Health Technologies and Medical Devices; Big Data Analytics & Visualization; and Information Technology & Society.

IoT Emerge 2016 in Chicago on 2-4 November will be focused on Industrial IoT, Smart Cities and IoT Engineering. The event aims to show how existing IoT innovators are leveraging data analytics, instituting security best practices, establishing infrastructure, and developing sensor-based networks to get their organizations ready for IoT.

The many benefits of IoT are counterbalanced by serious concerns about security issues related to a world where everything is connected. Security of Things World USA on 3-4 November in San Diego will address this important issue.
